    Cool tunes, but I was more struck by your use of a photo that's heavily watermarked by your school photographer in your profile. Proofs don't bring the ladies, Mike

    I thought you already gave us The Late Greats. Why are you giving it to us again? Quit giving it to me.

    Nice work man, a simplistic hook will get them every time! You've only been with them a week or so right?

    You had me on Mona until the second half. I think that the beginning showed some really excellent composition and playing. That whole first section could stand on its own as a very excellent song. I really dug Thelma, too. If there was bass on that song, however, I really couldn't hear it. (I'm listening to it through some nice AKG's, too.) But the song itself gets an A+.

    My only criticism would involve cleaning up your respective tones a little bit. Distorted bass is okay, but would sound even sweeter clean. (That's just me - I was never a fan of bass and distortion. If it's your thing, go for it.) Your guitarists' distortion sounded pretty iffy, though. They need to warm up their tone a bit. Sounds kinda harsh. :meh:

    Mona is the only one with bass... They recorded those before I joined... They probably forgot the other two songs anyways. :p

    The bass doesn't have distortion, unless the recorder was clipping a little. Its just got that G&L/Fender growl, plus a sansamp DI...

    I dunno what the guitarist's deal was... It was like he wanted that telecaster twang, and I'm like "Dude, its an SG. Don't half-ass that distortion." Meh.


    thanks for the input!

    After double-checking my calculations I'm going to have to point out that Superduck is incorrect. The second half pwns the first half. At least according to my Pwnometer 3000..and it's never been wrong before.
